THE FADE KINGS

      

The Fade Kings bring a unique perspective to the Blues. Formed in 1992, the band has developed a distinctive sound characterized by solid grooves, compelling melodies, and strong musicianship, fusing multiple music genres into a musical tour de force. Their music is steeped heavily in the blues and R&B, with influences of soul, jazz, roots traditional, Latin and rock, creating an exciting and unique sound.  

The Fade Kings were selected in 2008 and 2009 to represent the Loyal Blues Fellowship at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. CBC Radio, CKLN 88.1 FM (Toronto), CFRC (Queen's University), CKOL, CJLX (Loyalist College Radio) and KWE 105.9 FM have all featured tracks from their CD "Years to Recover".  The band is extremely versatile, playing large concert venues and intimate clubs with equal ease. In addition to music festivals and club dates, the Fade Kings are also available to entertain at corporate special events and private functions. They have also performed at fundraising events for causes important to the band (see Giving Back).  

Based in Ontario's Quinte area, the Fade Kings are John 'Jake' de Vries (bass & vocals), Eric Fry (guitars & vocals), Dave Impey (drums & vocals), and Leigh Moore (keyboards & vocals). Sax player extraordinaire Ian Kojima also frequently joins the Fade Kings on stage.  "The Fade Kings do anything but fade... they positively wail! A solid group of mighty fine musicians, they were a big hit with the crowd at the Limestone City Blues Festival..... This band is good! They obviously enjoy playing together, and they do it so well, producing music that you just want to get up and dance to...I hear mixes of R&B, soul, latin, funk, and jazz/blues. All very well-done, all characterized by good musicianship."
Ron Dickenson, Buff Blues, CFRC-FM
